states and, frankly, people should pipe down the rhetoric. >> the state democratic party and the obama campaign armed with lawyers fought back and filed a lawsuit and a federal judge intervened, ordering the state to give all voters the right to cast their votes in person on the final three days before the election day, including that sunday. the u.s. supreme court rejected an appeal by republicans. that was the precedent. normal politics at the state level are no protection for the interest of voters who tend to be excluded by these voting restrictions. those rights, as we've learned, in case after case, not the least of which in ohio two years ago, those rights must be protected by the courts. and that's why my next guest is taking his case to court for a rematch with secretary of state husted, joining me is ed fitzgerald. ed, husted says, look, we've got a ton of early voting and republicans in the state are saying it's very expensive to keep this open. they're also saying this is bipartisan consensus, we solicited opinions.
